How much does a central air conditioner cost installed? We answer that question in detail in this central AC price guide. The comprehensive discussion covers 4 important factors:

Each factor affects the price. When you read elsewhere that “the average central air conditioner costs $5,000 installed,” that information alone doesn’t tell you enough. For that cost, the unit could be a cheap, large and inefficient AC suitable for a large home in the North, or it could be a medium-sized, high-efficiency and high-quality model suitable for small homes in hot climates.

Here are the topics addressed in this Central Air Conditioner Price and Review Guide:

Factors Affecting AC Unit Price

Let’s consider those 4 important keys to central air conditioner cost. This input will allow you to determine the ac unit that is right for your home.

1. Quality

Not all air conditioner brands offer similar quality. Here are the top companies divided by their place in the market. We’ve put brands together in parenthesis that have the same parent company and essentially the same product lineup:

  • Budget brands – (lowest cost, 12 to 16-year durability): Examples are Payne, Aire-Flo, Airtemp, Goodman and Ameristar.
  • Standard brands – (moderate cost, 15 to 18-year durability): Examples are (Heil, Arcoaire, ComfortMaker, KeepRite and Tempstar), (Armstrong and Ducane), (Rheem and Ruud), (Daikin and Amana), (Luxaire, York and Coleman), (Maytag, Broan, Westinghouse, Tappan, Frigidaire, Nordyne and NuTone), Bosch
  • Premium brands – (highest cost, 18 to 25-year durability): Examples are Lennox, (American Standard and Trane), (Carrier, Bryant and Day & Night)

Many sister brands make air conditioners that are identical except for the name. These air conditioner lists from Heil and Tempstar demonstrate the point.

Interestingly, all the brands in that group are owned by United Technology Corporation, the parent company of Carrier and Bryant in the premium category. This shows that UTC is seeking to capture consumers in various segments of the market. Lennox does the same thing with its Ducane and Aire-Flo brands.

2. Performance

Regardless of the quality niche they’re in, all brands make units in one or more of these performance categories:

  • Basic performance: These are single-stage central air conditioners with a SEER efficiency rating of 13-15. They are loud and might produce temperature fluctuations or cold spots in your home. All brands make “Basic” ACs.
  • Better performance: These are two-stage central air conditioners with SEER ratings of 16-19. They run on low, which is about 65 percent capacity, most of the time, so are quieter than single-stage units and cool more evenly. They’re more effective at dehumidifying your home too. Most brands make “Better” performance air conditioners.
  • Best performance: These are variable-capacity central air conditioners, called modulating or variable-speed by some brands. These units have compressors that modulate by very small degrees between 25 percent and 100 percent capacity with the result that the units are the quietest, most efficient, best at removing humidity and produce the most balanced temperatures. Variable-capacity ACs have SEER ratings as high as 26. These “Best” units are made by Standard and Premium brands.

3. Efficiency

The term SEER stands Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Like gas mileage ratings, SEER is a rating of how many Btu’s of cooling the unit can produce for the electricity it uses. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit is.

Choosing the right efficiency rating for your purposes is discussed below.

4. Size (Ton)

Each residential AC model is produced in a range of sizes. Some start at 18,000 Btu while others start at 24,000 Btu. This is a measurement of the amount of heat per hour the units remove from your home. Most central air conditioner models increase incrementally by 6,000 to 12,000 Btu. The largest residential units are 60,000 Btu.

Within the industry, sizes are also spoken of in “tons”, a term that dates to using tons of ice to cool buildings. One ton of air conditioning capacity is equivalent to 12,000 Btu’s of cooling.

2021 Central Air Conditioner Prices

(Updated on Feb 9th, 2021)

Air conditioner prices are rising for a range of reasons including higher manufacturing costs, tariffs and the fact that today’s ACs are more efficient than ever before.

Because of that, we’ve updated pricing, so here are 2021 central air conditioner prices for all brands and ACs by size from 1.5 ton/18,000 BTUs to 5 ton/60,000 BTU.

What’s In These 2021 Air Conditioner Price Quotes?

The prices in the tables include everything – a complete system.

We’ve priced them in separate columns for:

1). Just the equipment

2). The whole system installed.

Most brands including the top names like Trane, Carrier and Lennox, are sold as a package: The equipment plus installation. You can only get them from local brand dealers and HVAC installers.

We itemize equipment and installation to see where your money will be going.

What’s in a Central Air Conditioning System?

A central air conditioner system is more than just the condensing unit – the outdoor unit usually referred to as the air conditioner.

If you sign a contract for a new air conditioning system, it will (at least should) include the following.

  • Condensing unit – outdoor unit
  • Indoor coil – housed in or near the furnace or air handler
  • Refrigerant line set to connect the coil in the condensing unit to the indoor coil
  • Refrigerant to fill the system, if the unit is not pre-filled or if the refrigerant line set is longer than usual.

Central AC Prices Table – AC + Installation

The prices in these table include all the equipment and materials plus AC installation labor cost.

Note: The price ranges are very broad for 2 reasons.

1). They cover all sizes, from 1.5 to 5.0 tons

2). They cover all series from basic to better to best, plus the lowest efficiency to the highest efficiency.

For example, Carrier makes Comfort (basic – up to 16 SEER), Performance (better – Up to 17 SEER) and Infinity (Best – Up to 21 SEER). Most brands make a similar range.

Central AC Prices by Unit Size

If you know what size unit you have or need, this chart will help you narrow your cost.

We’ve included a rough idea of home size, but you cannot be sure of the size AC unit you need without a pro technician doing a load calculation, such as a Manual J, that measures 10+ factors including home size, style, construction materials, door/windows, climate and more.

Central AC Installation Cost and Extras

How much does it cost to install a central air conditioner?

$1,400 – $3,500 | Central Air Conditioner Installation Cost for Labor

This cost is based on many factors including:

  • Brand name – Carrier and Bryant cost more than Heil and Day & Night even thought the equipment is nearly identical and all brands are owned by United Technologies Corporation (UTC)
  • Difficulty of the installation
  • Distance from the condensing unit (outdoor unit) to the indoor coil
  • Size of the AC unit and coil – more refrigerant is needed for larger systems, and refrigerant is expensive
  • Who you hire (general AC installer or brand-certified installer)
  • Size of the installation company (smaller companies with less overhead sometimes charge lower rates)
  • Where you live – Cost of living in your area will affect AC installation cost

This price includes everything – removing old AC equipment, if needed, setting the new condensing unit, installing the new indoor coil, replacement of the refrigerant lines and topping off the system with refrigerant if necessary.

Itemized AC Installation Costs

Here’s a breakdown of costs associated with the installation of a new or replacement central air conditioner. As noted, refrigerant line, refrigerant and indoor coil are included in the above costs.

The prices below show where your money is going – or where you might need to spend extra money for system components like a condensing unit pad, ductwork, thermostat or zoning controls.

Brand New Ductwork: If your house has never been installed with an HVAC system before, you need to pay extra money for it.

$2,000-$4,000 | Quality R-6 insulated ductwork

Related Article: HVAC Ductwork Cost Guide

Condensing unit pad: Most installers won’t put a condensing unit directly on the ground, so a pre-fab pad can be used or a concrete slab can be poured.

$20-$150 | Condensing unit pad

Refrigerant lineset: There are two lines. One carries refrigerant from the coil in the condensing unit to the indoor coil; the second returns the refrigerant to the outdoor coil. Linesets from 20 to 50 feet are produced; length affects cost.

$120-$400 | Refrigerant lineset

Evaporator coil: This indoor coil can be a cased coil that installs on top of your furnace or an uncased coil that installs in the furnace cabinet. The indoor coil, known as the evaporator coil, collects heat from the air circulating over the coil. The heat transfers into the refrigerant, and it is carried to the outdoor coil where it is released. As heat is removed from the air, the indoor coil gets cold enough to condense moisture. Drier air in summer is more comfortable. The condensed moisture is collected in a drain pan. The evaporator coil must be sized to the capacity of the central air conditioning system.

$175-$500 | Uncased evaporator coil

$225-$575 | Cased evaporator coil

Thermostat: If your new central air conditioner or complete HVAC system has features the old one didn’t, you’ll probably need to replace your thermostat. You might want to do this anyway if you currently don’t have a programmable or Wi-Fi thermostat that allows you to monitor and control your heating and cooling using your smartphone and an app.

$12-$100 | Non-programmable thermostat

$15-$124 | Basic programmable thermostat

$135-$500 | Wi-Fi programmable thermostat

HVAC Zoning Controls:

The cost of zoning system is typically around $2,000 to $3,500 depending on the number of zones. For more information, read our HVAC Zoning System Cost Guide.

Other HVAC Optional Add-ons: There are a couple of optional add-ons you may have heard of. Those of you, who are interested in them, can take a look at:

What Size Air Conditioner Do I Need?

Getting the right size ac unit is essential to your indoor comfort and to the durability of the system. An AC unit that is too small will work too hard and might not cool the space effectively. This will also lead to premature mechanical failure. A unit too large will over-cool your home, creating temperature swings. The unit might also short-cycle, a malfunction that can destroy an AC compressor in the condensing unit.

Before having a Manual-J calculation made, you can get a pretty accurate estimate of the size unit you’ll need with the following information.  First, find your location on this US Climate Zone map below.

Image Source: basc.pnnl.gov

The hotter your climate is, the more cooling power you’ll need per square foot of your home. This is a quick reference:

  • Zones 1 & 2 (hot): 22-30 Btu/sq. ft.
  • Zone 3 (warm): 20-24 Btu/sq. ft.
  • Zone 4 (moderate): 18-22 Btu/sq. ft.
  • Zone 5 (cool): 16-20 Btu/sq. ft.
  • Zone 6 (cold): 14-18 Btu/sq. ft.
  • Zone 7 (very cold): 12-16 Btu/sq. ft.

To give you an idea of how these numbers might translate into your home, let’s turn them into central AC unit sizes for an average house of 2,000 square feet in each of the climate zones:

  • Zones 1 & 2 (hot): 2,000 x 24-30 = a 44,000 to 60,000 Btu (4.0-5.0 ton)
  • Zone 3 (warm): 2,000 x 20-24 = a 40,000 to 48,000 Btu (3.5-4.0 ton)
  • Zone 4 (moderate): 2,000 x 18-22 = a 36,000 to 44,000 Btu (3.0-3.5 ton)
  • Zone 5 (cool): 2,000 x 16-20 = a 32,000 to 40,000 Btu (2.5-3.5 ton)
  • Zone 6 (cold): 2,000 x 14-18 = a 28,000 to 36,000 Btu (2.0-3.0 ton)
  • Zone 7 (very cold): 2,000 x 12-16 = a 24,000 to 32,000 Btu (2.0-2.5 ton)

The range in sizes is the result of factors related to your home’s construction. In short, homes with more insulation, energy-efficient windows and doors and light-colored roofing need fewer Btu’s of cooling.

Summarizing the sizing of a central air conditioner, keep in mind:

  • A home in a cool climate requires a smaller central air conditioner than the same home would need in a hot climate
  • A replacement AC should be smaller if the home’s insulation has been upgraded or other energy-efficiency modifications have been made
  • A replacement AC should be larger if additional space, such as a finished basement or converted garage, is to be air conditioned

What Efficiency (SEER) is Right for You?

How efficient should your central AC be? If eco-friendly heating and cooling is the highest priority, then buy the most efficient system you can afford. Since the most efficient ACs are also the best performers, the answer is the same if superior indoor climate control and comfort is your goal.

When cost-efficient air conditioning of your home is what you want, finding the right balance between equipment cost and energy cost is the key. Referring to the Climate Zone chart again:

  • Zones 1 & 2 (hot): 18 SEER and up
  • Zone 3 (very warm): 17-18 SEER
  • Zone 4 (warm): 16-18 SEER
  • Zone 5 (moderate): 15-16 SEER
  • Zone 6 (cool): 15-16 SEER
  • Zone 7 (cool): Up to 15 SEER

The above SEERs are roughly estimated. We also developed a SEER Savings Calculator to help find a better balance between equipment cost and electricity cost.

There are a few more factors to consider.

Moist air is harder to cool, so if high humidity is common in your area, then getting a more efficient AC Units will reduce energy costs and make your home more comfortable.

The longer you intend to live in your current home, the more cost-effective a very efficient central air conditioner will be because its higher cost will be recouped when spread over more years.

If you plan to sell soon, you won’t get the long-term energy cost savings of an efficient air conditioner. However, keep in mind that some potential buyers will want to know how efficient your AC is, especially in warm and/or humid parts of the country.

LA County must have Ultra low NOX furnaces. This includes new ducting in the attic and they will wrap the metal fiberglass wrapped ducting in the garage to make it look nicer. Also includes the iwave R air purifier. I had 5 estimates with LENNOX topping out at 18k. Only one company was slightly lower but they quoted me on an 80k BTU furnace and I currently have 100k. The company I went with is a family owned company that appears to be very professional. Install is scheduled next week. Everything is Carrier including the thermostat. They originally quoted 14188 but I offered 13k and they agreed. My current LENNOX unit is 41 years old and still blows cold but every summer we cross our fingers that it does not go out and finally decided its time. If this new one lasts 20 years I will be happy and 81 years old.

19 year old Amana RCC42A2B 12 SEER condenser had broken down. The cost of repair (replacement of cracked and now discontinued condenser coil) was quoted to be 3 week lead special order at 50% of the newer and 20-22% more efficient 16 SEER unit. Evaporator core in the airhandler (furnace) had to be replaced because the old system was running on R-22 refrigerant and all new ones run on R-410A. Looked at perfectly matching Lennox unit EL16XC1 (and it came in at 5.3% cheaper), however, based on existing relationship with local Amana dealer decided to stay with the brand and it's newer product line for their post sales customer support and fast emergency service response times.

Replaced a 30y/o Rudd unit on 6/1/19 with this Armstrong unit based on Consumer Reports reliability ratings and local HVAC guys recommendation. Already have had to replace the inside coil due to Dirty Sock syndrome (caused by using recycled aluminum to build the coil cheaper-bacteria builds up on the coil easier due to the porous nature of it) and then the compressor fan failed about a month ago. So two warranty issues in less than a year. It does cool well but is somewhat noisy compared to my Rheem unit that I still have for 2nd floor. Now looking to replace my Rheem unit due to age but probably going to spend the extra and go Trane.

Thread: Opinion on Airtemp HVAC Product Line

Bare bones Nordyne. About as good as anybody's builder line. Right now, American made but that will change by next year.

The "original" Airtemp, started by Chrysler, was sold to Fedders in the 70s. When Fedders destroyed themselves by putting rotary compressors in heat pumps, the Airtemp name went into mothballs. The supplier R E Michel is licensing it from someone for their own line. It's like a Gibson in the Nordyne family.

If you have a high efficiency blower motor inside, the BE series does bump up to 15 SEER. The B6EMMX air handler is a fixed speed high efficiency air handler. Or they can use a MB7VM modular variable speed blower and matching coil to get you variable speed, which I'd recommend.

If you want to spend a bit more, ask the dealer about Broan or one of the deluxe Nordyne units. The FT4BE is lots quieter than the VT4BE, namely because of the swept wing fan blade. Indoor units are the same.

Ac air reviews temp

5.0

Awesome Friendly Service.

We found Air Temps at the home show in Kelowna. We found it very easy to talk to both Mike and Nelia, and therefore, did not look any further for another HVAC company. They were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions, in the products that we were looking for. It was great to see people who are passionate in a business and their work. Mike installed our furnace/air conditioner and hot water tank. We did have issues with how the installation was going to take place, no fault of Mike's, our house was poorly constructed to accommodate the units we wanted. Mike was quick to come up with solutions, to get all the units installed. We were very happy with the end result. Mike was very efficient, friendly, professional and just plain easy to deal with. Plus a contractor that shows up when he says he does...those are hard to find. We would highly recommend Mike.

Review of the Best Airtemp Furnaces

Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s delve deeper and finally go over the details of the best furnaces that Airtemp offers. 

Types of Airtemp Furnaces

Airtemp provides several types of furnaces to its customers to ensure that all of their needs are fulfilled during freezing winter nights. In order to decide which model to get yourself, this portion will help you out.  

The two categories of Airtemp furnaces are oil and gas ones. 

Oil Furnaces 

These furnaces by Airtemp have unmatched quality with clean combustion and engineered airflow. They come with high-density cabinet insulation, which makes the furnace run smoothly and quietly. The different models of oil furnaces include HighBoy, Lowboy, and Downflow. 

Gas Furnaces

The other ones are gas furnaces, which have several models as well. These also have cleaner combustion and durable finish for longevity. They are also equipped with a dependable heat exchanger. Here are the different models that Airtemp offers in the market:

VG7TC-V Models

These furnaces operate at the lowest cost and are 95% efficient. They come with two-stage heating and a variable-speed blower that is also energy-efficient and offers maximum comfort control for the members of the family.

VG7SC/L Models

This model type by Airtemp operates at a 92% efficiency rate and still offers considerable energy without boosting operating costs. They are more affordable and provide comfort for all types of homes. 

VG7SA/K Models

These are 80% AFUE furnaces. They provide excellent value to the users and consist of top-notch features. 

VG7SD/M Models

With 95% AFUE, this model furnace saves up to 95% energy and has lower operating costs as well. It is highly efficient and comes with all the necessary features required for warmth and comfort in your home.

Comparison Overview 

Let’s now compare Airtemp with some of the competitors in the market:

Lennox Fuel Oil And Airtemp Fuel Oil Furnaces

Both Lennox and Airtemp are Energy Star certified and are designed with the highest quality materials to ensure durability and longevity. They both also aim to be energy-efficient and have a similar rectangle-shaped design. 

However, Lennox has models that are up to 98.7% energy-efficient, while the highest energy efficiency level Airtemp’s furnaces have is 95%. Moreover, the former uses Precise Comfort technology for keeping consistent temperatures and SilentComfort for quiet operation. Meanwhile, the latter uses SmartLite technology and offers cleaner combustion. It also uses high-density cabinet insulation for quiet operation.

Airtemp vs Goodman Furnace

Goodman and Airtemp both utilize multi-speed ECM blowers to ensure consistently and even heat transfer throughout the room. They are both energy-efficient as well and have an aesthetic design, which makes them look almost similar. They both also use tubular heat exchanger technology.

The difference comes in the little intricacies such as the sloped heat exchanger design on Goodman furnaces. Goodman also uses wrinkle bend technology that retains the strength of the wall and helps in even the transfer of heat. Airtemp uses engineered airflow and relies on SmartLite technology for quality assurance. 

Airtemp Furnace Troubleshooting 

You may face a number of minor or major issues during installation or after using different models of this furnace. Some of these issues may include things such as:

  • Thermostat Not Turning On: This can occur due to the drainage of batteries or the debris or dust collected inside it that makes it inefficient.

  • Inability of the Thermostat to Produce Heat: A circuit breaker or fuse that is tripped or blown can cause the thermostat to not generate heat. The filter might be terribly clogged in such a case.

  • Faulty Limit Switch: An inefficient limit switch could cause the blower to operate constantly, resulting in a lack of its performance and shortening its lifespan.

 In order to fix a few of these issues, here is a troubleshooting guide:

Solid Green and Red Light on Airtemp Furnace No Amber Light

A red light on your Airtemp furnace means that a safety issue in your furnace has resulted in the shutdown of the whole furnace as it detected or recognized a fault. 

Airtemp Gas Furnace Status Green Light Flashing

If the green light on the furnace is flashing slowly, it means that the furnace is on but has received no instructions on turning on the heat. If the light is constantly flashing, you need to replace the IFC circuit board as the furnace does not receive any electrical power.

Airtemp Furnace Restarts Several Times During Heat Cycle

When a furnace restarts or shuts down itself several times, it means that it has overheated and needs to calm down and rest before starting up again. Restricted airflow is usually the cause of an overheating furnace, and it can be dangerous if it is not turned off on time. 

Airtemp Furnace Open Limit Switch Fault

The code or phrase’s meaning is that the furnace has overheated. The limit switch turns the furnace burner off and turns on the fan, especially if there is a high-temperature problem on the furnace. It can also mean that the switch is malfunctioning and needs to be repaired.

Airtemp Furnace Not Igniting

If the Airtemp furnace is not igniting, it essentially means that it needs cleaning, or it needs to be repaired. If the ignitor is dirty, it will restrict the flow of air into the furnace, which will cause It to shut down or malfunction. So you need to check the air filters for debris if this issue occurs.

Airtemp Furnace Burners Won’t Stay Lit

If the burner keeps malfunctioning or shutting on and off, you might need to check its air filters. Overheating and other malfunctioning issues can occur if the furnace burners aren’t cleaned out properly. The air can be restricted, and the furnace won’t stay lit if it’s not cleaned out.

Airtemp Furnace, No Flames

A dirty pilot flame is weak and can cause little to no flames on your furnace. It will show up as a yellow-colored indicator light, which means you need to clean the filters and repair them so that they can be used again properly and become brand new.

Conclusion 

Airtemp offers a wide variety of products and models for all its users. The brand name is known to provide dependable and efficient solutions for home comfort. Their furnaces are quite popular and feature different models. They also come with impressive warranties as well. Good luck finding the right one for you!
